Picture Hanging

It’s not just art that needs hanging these days. There are other things too, like flat screen TVs, monitors, whiteboards, signage or even shelves, blinds or curtains. So if you need any help call us.

Yes, people actually pay us to hang their pictures and paintings for them.

We always enjoy sharing simple services like this because we think it shows a side to the handyman business that most wouldn’t expect. Being a handyman isn’t always about working under a sink and other dirty jobs. Much of it is actually pretty easy and enjoyable work. Well, if you are promoting the right services to the right customers it is.

Picture hanging is a great example of one such service that is relatively easy. You might be thinking that it’s ridiculous that people pay us to hang pictures but the truth is, for many people, hanging pictures is well outside of their skill set. Either that or they don’t have to because they have enough money to pay others to do it for them.

And, in some rare cases too, it’s because the pictures are so damned big or even expensive, that they NEED to call in a professional to assist in hanging them.

Quick tips for hanging art:

Our number one tip is to hang it perfectly. After all, that’s why you would be paying us.

We never rush these types of projects because we always want to make sure things are perfectly level and accurately centred… and needless to say, right where you want it. First we’ll get your approval on EXACTLY where it’s going to go. We never hang pictures using just a best guess approach. We always find out its true location before we even get started.

We then have to make sure it’s solid. If we don’t have the correct (often over-engineered) mounting hardware in our stocked range of specialist fixings to hang the art so that an earthquake wouldn’t knock it off, then we simply won’t hang it. We’ll go to the store first and get what we need to do the job right.

Of course it’s not just art that needs hanging these days. There are other things to be hung too, like flat screen TVs, monitors, whiteboards, signage or even shelves, blinds or curtains.

So if you need help with your ‘hangings’, you know we’re the guys for you.
